One of the groups I’m so thrilled to be a part of, is Altered Art Obsession — A group that focuses on quality and reliability in swaps.. this bunch of artists holds so much talent! I’m honored to be in their company.

I had dropped out of swaps this year, mostly due to time.. and to make time to get caught up… but this one? I couldn’t resist! Plus, I had a few months to complete them.. added bonus! I really do miss swapping, and can’t wait to have a bit more time to join in again.. hope is in sight!

Here’s the idea.. It’s a monochromatic, collaborative wall hanging assemblage ..

 Prettiest in Green

When we signed up for the swap, we each chose a color (I chose shabby/antique Ivory), and were assigned to a group. You create one 4″ x 4″ Canvas Board for each color in your group, then send to the hostess (TisJewel .. I love her swaps! ) .. she will then assemble them, and return them.. all in your color.. I probably did a terrible job of explaining that… but what do ya expect? My brain is fried!

 Bashful and Feminine

At any rate.. These photos are the results of my efforts.. I didn’t want to have my pieces be too busy, as they will be displayed alongside other creations.. so I thought more focus on textures, and tones would be appropriate. The backgrounds are where I spent most of my attention.

Sadly, these photos didn’t turn out well.. they don’t show all the depth, texture, and the different sheens & glimmers the backgrounds have. <sigh>. But at least it gives you a general idea!

I’ll be posting the rest of the wall colab canvases in the next few days.. my camera batteries died before I could finish photographing! Hope you enjoyed what I’ve done so far, as always.. I’d love to hear your opinions and critiques!

On another quick note .. check out this adorable danglie I listed on Etsy today! I think I may do an entire series of them.. can’t you picture them hanging off of curly branches in a vase with rocks.. or moss.. so many possibilities!

  1. OH Chrysti!! Wonderful new ART!!! SO BEAUTIFUL ! I always LOVE to look at what you create!

  2. I absolutely LOVE almost all of these (a couple maybe I only like a lot *laugh*). The single colour approach really sets off the nuances and textures. And seems like it would be a little easier to get focused on your subject and the feeling of the piece without wondering about colour combinations, etc.

    If you do more of the ornaments, I could very well be interested…..I’m going to check out your store now. :)

  3. Wonderful ART!!! SO BEAUTIFUL -I absolutely LOVE almost all of these
